Green Day announced last night during a performance that they’re headlining a stadium tour in 2024 alongside The Smashing Pumpkins. During a club show in Las Vegas on Thursday night, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong announced the upcoming tour as stated by Consequence. “I have a big announcement. It’s really big. Get your cameras ready,” Armstrong reportedly teased before dropping the info. This announcement came ahead of the band’s headline performance at the “When We Were Young” festival this weekend. Also joining the tour is fellow 90s pop-punk band, Rancid. No dates from the tour have been revealed yet.
Green Day also unveiled a new track titled “The American Dream is Killing Me” during the show. The pop-punk trio reportedly played each song from their 1994 breakthrough, Dookie, which will mark its 30th anniversary next year. The show featured the live premiere of “Graffitia” from Green Day’s last album. The trio also performed several songs that hadn’t been performed live in years. This included “Oh Love,” “Stuart and the Ave.,” “Warning,” and “Homecoming.”
Green Day’s New Song Will Be on Their Upcoming Album
“The American Dream Is Killing Me” is a track from Green Day’s upcoming album, scheduled to be released next Tuesday (October 24). This song has already created a buzz on social media. The forthcoming album will be their first since the acclaimed Father Of All Motherf—kers in 2020.
Earlier in the summer, Green Day debuted a new track called ‘1981’ at the festival d’été de Québec. They also reopened their Reverb online shop, selling nearly 100 pre-owned gear items from different points in their career.

Smashing Pumpkins also recently announced a joint tour with Weezer in the UK and Ireland for next year. Additionally, they commemorated the 30th anniversary of their iconic album Siamese Dream by recreating its release show and treating fans to a selection of rare performances. Though The Smashing Pumpkins had some indie success with their previous album, 1991’s Gish, it was Siamese Dream that led to a mainstream crossover.
The Smashing Pumpkins also released their latest album Atum this year. They embarked on a tour with Interpol and Stone Temple Pilots last summer.
Meanwhile, the US punk-rock band Rancid released their 10th studio album, titled “Tomorrow Never Comes,” in June. To commemorate this release, which is their first since 2017’s “Trouble Maker,” they performed a live show at the OVO Arena in Wembley, London. Rancid road the wave of Green Day’s success with Dookie in 1994 with their 1995 breakthrough, ...and Out Come the Wolves.
